The Rajiv Gandhi International Airport (RGIA), Hyderabad has achieved carbon neutral status. It is the first in the Asia-Pacific region in the 5-15 million passengers per annum category to attain this status. In a press release, GMR Hyderabad International Airport Ltd, a GMR Group-led consortium, which manages and operates the airport, also claimed that it is the second airport among all categories in the Asia-Pacific region to achieve carbon neutral status. Earlier in September, 2016 GMR Group-led Delhi Airport had become the first airport in Asia-Pacific to achieve carbon neutral status among all categories. Hope this clarifies your doubt
